The difficult reduction decisions l.jpg

The Difficult Reduction Decisions

Priorities to maintain the core program model that has been highly successful for Farmington for over 25 years:

Core programs – These programs impact the core of educational programming; i.e. class size, core subject areas K-12, etc.

Class size – Research shows the #1 indicator for improved achievement is the teacher. Class size at the elementary level protects the core educational programming that has led us to high levels of student achievement K-12.

Reductions were built off the next level of reductions for 09-10 (utilized Dr. Howley’s 09-10 budget recommendations as a foundation).

Budget Process - Met with school and program leaders to elicit feedback. Given the significant personnel cuts at FHS in 09-10, K-12 reductions were explored.

Guiding Principles:

Standards-Led School District

Graduation Requirements
